New Year's Eve

We are on the doorsteps of a New Year - on the threshold looking in...

We are heading towards the darkness of night, and the dawn of a new day and year...

This morning I read these simple words, written as a prayer:

"Dear God, on the eve of this New Year
teach me that yesterday is history,
tomorrow is a mystery,
but today is the present
and that it why it is called a gift."

And then, right before my morning meditation, these words by Paramahansa Yogananda:

"Let us forget the sorrows of the past
and make up our minds
not to dwell on them in the New Year.
With determination and unflinching will,
let us renew our lives,
our good habits,
and our successes.
If the last year has been hopelessly bad,
the New Year must be hopefully good."

And, to all who read these words - to your and your beloved ones:
May your New Year be full of love,
grace and peace,
love and harmony,
and filled with countless blessings!
